Pactimo Men's Summit Aero SS Jersey
The Pactimo Men's Summit Aero SS Jersey is supposed to offer the ultimate in breathability, performance and comfort, and it certainly lives up to the hype. It's made from recycled materials too.
Made from a recycled polyester called 'Borghini', it's a lightweight, stretchy weave, designed for a figure hugging, wind-cheating cut. Hexagonal mesh panels also run along the pits and sides for improved airflow and wicking.
Continuing the drag cheating narrative, we have a low-profile collar and 'raw edge' sleeves. The latter not only offers a superior aesthetic but a seamless marriage between skin and sleeve. Like most jerseys these days, they employ silicone gripper strips.
The weave is very soft by synthetic standards, and the flat seams leave no unsightly branding on your skin. Wicking and temperature regulation are similarly impressive – reviewer Shaun Audane seldom needed to drop the zipper to half mast, even on 25° outings. Also, when caught in a shower, the fabric wicked to touch dry within 15 minutes at 17 degrees and 18mph.
Durability wise, Shaun frequently worn this exploring on rough-stuff tourer, and overgrown bridlepaths have latched on but failed to induce bobbling or more obvious damage.
Overall, the Pactimo Men's Summit Aero SS jersey is a refined and extremely comfortable choice – it's worth the high price.
